Expectations are overrated 31 Aug 07:42

Friday afternoon, here we are!

As the staff is finalizing the plan for tomorrow, here's a couple of final details for you:

In case you didn't notice, the teams are out! As you log in you should now see a new tab appeared called "My team" where you can check out who will be playing by your side on Sunday. Ok I lied, teams are subject to change, but not that much. If you have a star next to your name it means you're a captain and you should at least read the Rules chapter in the homepage. The schedule will be out soon on the main page but every team has a game at 9am, so please be on time. Remember to pass by the registration desk at some point Saturday or Sunday morning to fulfill your pinky promise or just to get your lunch ticket.


For those of you who camp tomorrow we will provide food for the BBQ. We are going to buy a good amount (ribs, chicken wings, squids, hotdogs, fruit), but if your hunger is extreme we recommend to integrate with your own supplies, you have free access to the grill of course. Same goes for the beer, we have 15 cases (a lot but, it's never enough) and we need to drink the whole weekend so bring your own extra 6 pack and put it in the cooler if you plan on partying all night. After the BBQ, night games are on!


We will get wet. If you accept the fact that you will surely get wet from the beginning and plan for it, the worst it can happen is that you remain dry. Bring an umbrella or a rain coat or just wear your bathing suite all the time like I'm planning to.

The campsite is located on the left side of the road that leads to the beach from the bus stop, just before entering the small parking lot behind OhLaLa. It's a green area with a couple of shacks and it should have tents on it unless you're the first one (in that case set up your tent there). We'll be there by 12:30-13:00 tomorrow, if you get there earlier feel free to settle in.

Things you'll need
A bunch of things you shouldn't forget to pack:
  • A dark and a light jersey
  • Sunscreen
  • Waterbottle
  • Mosquito repellent
  • Torch/Flashlight (if you're camping)
  • Your glow in the dark disc for Saturday night if you have one
  • Your spirited game

That's pretty much all I can think of right now, if you have any doubts please contact us!

Luke: I can't. It's too big.
Yoda: Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Clam, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous clams are we, not this crude matter.

See you on the weekend!
